9 Charitable Gift Ideas for the Holidays
1. The Giving Wick Charitable Candle
Keep that giving spirit glowing all winter long with a candle from The Giving Wick. With a variety of great scents and a chic design, these candles are sure to be a cozy addition to any holiday set up. Best of all, 15% of all profits will be donated to Feeding America, which means your gift will keep shining a light even when the wick starts burning low. Include a card wishing a happy holiday season to “one of the brightest in the biz.”
2. SnackNation 15-Snack Box
Thinking about making a statement with the gift list from The 12 Days of Christmas? Might we suggest the 15-snack box from SnackNation instead. Your recipient will enjoy a quick boost with this selection of delicious and nutritious premium chips, bars, jerky, sweets, and more. But wait, there’s more: With every box delivered, SnackNation donates meals to families in need through their partnership with Feeding America. Send this box to anyone who is beyond busy with a cheery note about how even Rudolph needs a little extra something to keep his nose glowing bright!
3. Lula’s Garden Desk Succulent
Who wouldn’t love a little something green for the holidays? We’re talking succulents, of course. This fresh desk plant from Lula’s Garden arrives potted in a self-sustaining gift box, making it an elegant gift that will last well into the new year. As a bonus, this purchase also supports water.org, a global nonprofit organization working to bring water and sanitation to communities around the world. Send this gift with a note reminding your recipient that you’re here to help them “grow” in the new year.
4. Lotto Love Charitable Scratch Off Cards
Most of us have someone on our shopping list who insists they don’t want or need a gift. We have the perfect solution: Lotto Love’s Charitable Scratch Off Cards. These instant-winner lottery-style cards donate one of four basic needs gifts—literacy tools, clean water, nutritious meals, and solar energy—for someone in need. Include a card that tells your recipient you’re around to help them “scratch things off their list” in the new year.
5. Cookie Good’s What’d We Miss Cookie Dozen
This cookie box is meant to represent all the milestones of the past year and the sweet moments yet to come. With flavors like Coffee-Toffee Macaroon, Churro, and Red Velvet Cake, your recipients are sure to find something that they can smile about… and that’s before they learn that a portion of proceeds are donated to Black Lives Matter Los Angeles. Send this box to your favorite sweet tooth and social justice warrior and wish them a healthy, happy, and inspiring new year.
6. Spiceology Love is Love Variety Pack – 6 Mini Jar Rubs
This new collection of Spiceology’s delicious blends and rubs will bring some extra flavor to your holiday dishes… and some cheer to those in need. Spiceology is donating 10% of proceeds from sales of this product to food banks and pantries around the country. So go ahead, send this gift and help someone spice up their holiday season!
7. Fairytale Brownies Custom 24 Bite-Size Brownies
Classic Chocolate, Chewy Caramel, Toasty Walnut… need we go on? If those flavors didn’t win you over then maybe this will: By supporting Fairytale Brownies, you’re also giving the gift of play. To date the company has contributed over $475,000 to our non-profit partner, KaBOOM!, to help build playspaces for kids across the country. Send these with a note reminding your recipient of all the “sweet” times you had this year… and all the fun that is yet to come.
8. LUSH Charity Pot Body Lotion
One of the fastest-growing cosmetics brands in the world, LUSH has made a name for itself as a high-quality, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free beauty brand. Their Charity Pot Body Lotion is a great choice for all the beauty buffs on your list, especially since 100% of the price is donated to small grassroots organizations working in the areas of human rights, animal protection, and environmental justice. Add a note thanking your recipient for “giving 100%” this past year.
9. Social Stories Club’s Hug in a Box
This box of goodies will give your recipient that warm and fuzzy feeling—and not just because of the gourmet hot chocolate and shortbread biscuits. Every order includes a selection of products that support a variety of social causes, including Café Direct, which has contributed more than £6 million to coffee farmers around the world. Send this box to someone who loves an inspiring brand story and tell them that you’re around to help them “do some good” in the new year.
